This is by far the best place ofJapanese food in Bogotá. It is a small and modest restaurant with poor music selection and and dull atmosphere but the food is amazing. If you like authentic Japanese food this is the place to go.

Bogota is not at its best when it comes to Asian cuisine, and the Wabisabi offers a welcome exception to this rule. The food is excellent, always fresh and very reasonably priced by Bogota standards (much more affordable than most Japanese places here, which totally justifies the requirement to pay cash). The only downside is the complete lack of charm... More

Poor ambiance. Bad location, kind of hidden in a residential area. We felt that it was overpriced for the type of food and portion sizes. Service was friendly. Would not recommend it.

Not a top location for sushi. Decent miso soup. Very large portions. Sashimi is decent. Sushi is ok. A casual sushi place.

I was told by some Japanese friends that this place was really good, and boy were they right. Straight to the point, when you see the menu you may think it will be just as any other Japanese place, but when you get served, it completely changes your perspective. I had last night the KARIKARI and they prepared a big... More

I've recently started having Japanese food, and I love it. I tried Wabisabi, as it was near to where I was staying. Also found many good reviews on tripadvisor. Chief cook is Japanese. And unlike other good Japanese restaurants its not at all expensive. I had Japanese ceviche and calamares for starters. Followed by lots of Sushi. I wanted to... More

The restaurant is small but the chef is excellent and always kind with the customers!! The music selection from Japan also make you fell... More

If you don't care much about the ambience of a restaurant and are craving for the best sushi in Bogotá, then Wabisabi is where you need to be! The chef is Japanese, so you know that the food is pretty authentic. The only downside to this place is that they accept only cash! I hope they change this soon because... More
